A THEORY IS ONLY AS GOOD AS TO THE EXTENT IT SERVES


At the center of the universe there is a spot. It is everywhere at once. As such, it is mysterious and paradoxical to the mind. Yet, knowable, even though ineffable.

From one point of view the center of the universe is an infinitesimally small point—looking at it from the vertical orientation. From the horizontal aspect it is an infinitely long fine line originating at all points in space and time and extending out to the oneness of cosmic infinity.

These lines intersect to create the phenomenal universe.

Imagine that line as it is anchored to the center of the earth and extending out into cosmic infinity.

As human beings, we are given the conscious awareness to recognize and live in concert with that line. The human body is designed to align with that line. Some call it Gravity. Whatever the name, it is a living reality and it behooves us to consign ourselves to it.

Why? Because it is the central-most ecological fact. Once one has the imminent, direct apperception of it, the question of why one should align with it is tantamount to asking why one should breathe, or eat.

All activity is in the province of the horizontal. At the vertical, there is stillness, rest, and peace. It can arguably be said that a source of the problems and confusions of the world lies in an imbalance in the relationship of those two dimensions, the horizontal and the vertical.

I am so moved by you, in every way, I must speak candidly or I will never forgive myself if I don’t. You, dear lady, are the kind of woman with whom I would share myself wholeheartedly and completely, and before whom I would unhesitatingly lay my soul bare.

Talking About Rolf and Rolfing


Dr. Ida P. Rolf: Of Grace and Gravity

Exploring Dr. Rolf's Life, Work, and Legacy



“Dr. Ida Rolf was undoubtedly one of the most significant women of the twentieth century. A great mind and pioneering thinker, a creative scientist years ahead of her time, she spent much of her life exploring the human capacity for healing. Her education, professional career and life circumstances led her to explore various modalities that gradually evolved into what become known as "Structural Integration" and then took on the name "Rolfing." Essentially, Rolfing seeks to address the development and liberation of an individual's innate human potential, with the palliation of symptoms an ancillary benefit. Dr Rolf was initially educated and trained within the empiricism of scientific academia and remained firmly rooted in those traditions. Her work was founded upon the physics of aligning the human body within the field of gravity. She integrated her scientific perspective with mind-body awareness without relying on an eastern mystical philosophy to justify her conclusions. It is clear from her writings and teachings that her studies of biological chemistry and physics provided critical insight, inspiring such statements as, "You cannot change the energy field, but you can change the man--the body will go as far as it will physically go, within the laws of physics." and "What would happen to behavior if you changed chemistry? The first way to change chemistry is to change physics." Dr. Rolf conceived of "Rolfing" as a gateway into making progressive changes within the human organism, encompassing the physical, intellectual and emotional aspects.”
